ARES Net Control Volunteers

Firstly, I acknowledge the contribution made by Greg VA6GMC as ARES Net Control; thank you Greg.

ARES Red Deer is seeking volunteers to take on Net Control duties for the Sunday evening ARES Net. If you’re new to ARES, this is a good opportunity to learn or improve your net control and traffic handling skills.

There is a script to follow, and, in general, the Net doesn’t take more than 15 to 20 minutes. If you are able to commit to operating Net Control once every five weeks, I’d like to here from you.

Once there is at least five volunteers, a schedule will be drawn up with volunteers operating in rotation.

If you’re interested and would like to know more drop me a line at stephen dot lee@shaw dot ca, or give me a call at four zero three-three zero seven-1643.

If you’re already an ARES member that’s awesome, it not, why not sign up; just ask for details.

Swap meet

NARC Tailgater Swap Meet & Barbecue – DOOR PRIZE – Aug 12 2017 @ Noon

200 92Ave (East of 17th Street on 92 Ave) Edmonton – Look for our tower.

Open to all Hams regardless of club affiliation. No charge to vendors or attendees, but you will need to bring your own tables if you need one.

Come down and check out the wares and to meet other fellow hams. We will be serving burgers, dogs and beverages starting at noon, so bring your appetite.

The Northern Alberta radio Club will also have a table setup in our training building to sell off equipment that we no longer require and equipment that we collected through donations.

Hope to see you there.

Thank you.

Mislaid handheld radio at 2017 Red Deer

Not longer missing. Thought I had searched my truck but it was hiding just under the front seat.

2017 Voyageurs Rendezvous APRS

I will be travelling with the 2017 Voyageurs Rendezvous providing water support with my jet boat. They will be traveling from Rocky Mountain House to The Pas MB from 1 July to 23 July as part of the Canada 150 celebrations. This will commemorate the worlds longest canoe race from Rocky Mountain House to Montreal which occurred during Canada’s 1967 Centennial year. Although I will not be using an APRS radio, I will be using iAPRS to track our journey via the cellular network whenever I have cellular service. If anyone is interested in tracking our progression, they can look for my little canoe under VE6DDD-10. Not sure what the cell service will be like but will give it a go anyhow. More info can be found at www.voyageursrendezvous.ca

Thanks

Mislaid handheld radio at 2017 Red Deer Picnic

I mislaid my Yaesu dual band handheld at the picnic on Sunday morning, I think at the gathering, sometime between the Liar’s Contest and the prizes. It is a Yaesu FT-60 R 2 meter and 70 centimeter rig, serial number OJ180183. The little plastic cover over the speaker-mike and battery recharging jacks had been removed.

Any information is welcome.
